Land’s End to John o’ Groats (LEJOG)  1400 km

A 1400 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from the far south-western edge to the far north-eastern corner of the UK , at randonneur standard!

Start:  Land’s End, Cornwall

The LEJOG 1400 is a 1402 km cycling event sanctioned by Audax UK (AUK), set for 03-08 July 2022.

The LEJOG 1400 starts at the headland of Land’s End, Cornwall, the far south-western corner of the UK mainland and finishes at the village of John o’ Groats, the far north-eastern corner of the UK mainland.

The event is a randonnee, not a race! Those taking part have a maximum of 116-hours & 40-minutes to complete the challenging 1402 km route.

Land’s End to John o’ Groats is a longstanding route from the southwest tip of the UK to the northern tip – from Cornwall through the Cotswolds, the Midlands, the North, and finishing off in the Scottish Highlands, a windswept land of glacial lakes and an economy of trees. A succession of different terrains, architectures, and history. Celtic lands at the start and finish.

Entries are now open for the 2022 edition!

COVID-19

Overall, we’re more confident that the 2022 LEJOG will go ahead as planned despite the ongoing C*vid-19 Pandemic. The vaccination programme combined with the relaxing of travel restrictions, both domestic and international makes the event a huge probability, despite the number of variants that keep cropping up from time to time.

For foreign entrants still intending to travel over to the UK next July, the UK government has relaxed travel restrictions for entry into the UK for fully vaccinated travellers however, these are set to change at very short notice. I’d advise all foreign entrants to keep a close eye on the UK foreign office website here:
